About the College of Business
At University of Houston-Clear Lake's College of Business, we prepare you for long-term success in a dynamic world marketplace.
Our students go on to become entrepreneurs, managers, accountants, lawyers and countless other professional roles. We also have faculty who serve as corporate consultants, textbook authors and internationally recognized researchers.

Leadership for Tomorrow
We're training tomorrow's leaders, and that means we anticipate the needs of changing industries and a diverse workforce. In 2016, we launched an innovative MD-MBA Dual Degree Program with The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston to equip doctors for the business side of running their own practices. Our recently added Master of Business Administration sub-plan in sustainability prepares students for a business climate increasingly aware of environmental factors and impacts. Our online programs also draw national attention, allowing many of our students to pursue flexible degrees while continuing to hold full-time careers.
The College of Business at the University of Houston-Clear Lake holds both business and separate accounting accreditation with The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. Recognition by AACSB symbolizes the commitment to continuous improvement of educational quality, regional engagement with business partners, and the effectiveness of our societal impact. AACSB holds its member institutions to standards of excellence as interpreted by peer review teams, accreditation committees, and Board of Directors. Fewer than 1 percent of the business schools in the world, and only one other public university in the Houston region, have earned both business and separate accounting accreditation.
